It has been a year of trials, blessings, and watching God sustain us through it all. God helped us when we were stranded in Dodge City, Kansas with no easy way to get home. We were blessed to be able to get a new vehicle to
finish out deputation. God blessed us with our third son, Jonathan. This year we have traveled over 20,000 miles and have picked up support from several churches putting us just over 50% of our goal. We expect to be close to 55% in January when several other churches we visited this year begin their support. We thank God for the safety He has given us over the miles and the many wonderful churches we have visited this year.
We mentioned in our previous letter that Satan seemed to be attacking our extended family to discourage us. Basically, both sets of our parents are going through major job changes at the same time. God has provided for each of them through this time. They are not completely out of the woods yet, but God is working as He always does.
We still have a goal of moving to the field to start learning the language and culture in 2019. I believe we could do this part with about 65% of our support. We are trying to schedule meetings along the East Coast from
February through April. We want to stay around Indiana for May and June as we make preparations to move in the summer of 2019. Please pray we are able to raise the support and save the money necessary for this move.
Thank you for your continued
prayer and financial support.
Merry Christmas and
Happy New Year!
